Father’s Day Watercolor Card

Hi everyone, today I would love to share with you a watercolor card I created, using some old stamps I have in my stash from Great Impressions for Father’s Day. I received some Tim Holtz Distress Markers for Christmas and had not yet, had a chance to really play with them,  so I thought why not try them out with some watercolor techniques.
I first stamped my images on some watercolor paper and began to color in the images using Tim Holtz Distress Markers. This is the first time I have colored with these markers. I began by applying a light coat of water where I wanted the color and in a circular motion began to spread the color with a watercolor paint brush. To get the darker colors for shadowing I just added more layers of the distress marker and blended it out.

For the background I applied Distress Inks in Peacock Feathers and Tumbled Glass to my mat and added some water. I then applies water with my brush to the background and picked up the color with my paint brush and applied to i got the desired color I was looking for.
